From my understanding, it can say pretty much anything. With JT I would expect it's a full NTC because JT is a team guy, took a BIG discount to stay with this team, and is the face of the franchise. With Marleau, with the stripping of the captaincy, pouting season, and limited discount, I wouldn't be surprised if there is some kind of out for Wilson. The question I think is did he, or the team, perform poorly enough to trigger the window. Who knows. Just saying, it certainly could happen.
Huh, I had no idea. Do you know of any publicly-known performance based clauses like this hypothetical one? Maybe DW had some sort of playoff clause, or something? I don't think anyone could have predicted that putrid series of his, but the numbers are a sticking point. What would be the cut-off in 5 games? 3 points? 4? At least 1 goal? It just sounds very odd to me. He hit 60 points, he hit 30 goals, he stayed healthy.
